St George IS an incredible place, with tremendous growth, and sadly, tremendous growth in the cost of living, but I digress.
My group stayed there 2 nights on our way to, and from, a backpacking trip to Grand Staircase Escalante.
Absolutely beautiful! I'd move there if I could. I think last year it was one of the fast growing cities in the U.S. And it's well located for the outdoors person.
